September Morning

  My morning walk by the bay. 
Do you see the recumbent camel?

  It’s my favorite month and I have a favorite September song. 

From the 1960s musical, The Fantasticks.



  1. I do see the camel. Are those clouds from Ida?
    Your song choice takes me back to when I went to this musical with my sister and her 2nd husband in NYC. I think it held a record for longest musical off Broadway. Just checked on Wikipedia and I was right. A 42 year run. Now I would have seen it in late 60s or early 70s.

    1. Wow, I didn’t realize that. 42 years! Paul played El Gallo, the narrator, in a production in the 1970s. Unfortunately, the theater was shut down after 3 performances by the fire marshal!

  2. That's definitely a camel floating across your sky.

  3. that was a good song, done by many others. the Sandpipers were a great group.

  4. A funny sky, the song is familiar here too!

  5. Fun to see stuff in the clouds! I would hate to clean that big house:(

  6. I do see the camel. I like Septermber too, and song.

    You described the fair so perfectly in your last post. Shelby and I are really looking forward to going to the state fair this October. We've missed two years now. Mason with the big glasses made me laugh. That is Mason, isn't it? :)

  7. A lovely song and funny sky. The camels are coming! September is my favourite month too but it is the opposite season to yours. The flowers and the bees and birds are abundant.

  10. Dear Cynthia, I hope this month of September in 2021 is wonderfully and unexpectedly surprising for you, bringing to you the beginnings of one of your deepest heart wishes.

    Thanks so much for the song. It and the much earlier song "September Song" have always been favorites of mine. I was so much younger when I first heart both of them and had no idea of what aging truly meant--no idea what the September years would be or the December ones. I feel now that I'm nearing the December years--maybe still in mid-November. Not sure of course. But in remembering my life and those autumn years I do find the incentive to continue to seek my own heart-wishes--those that have formed within me as I aged. Take care. Be well. Peace.

  11. Oh yes! I remember that song very well. It brings back such lovely memories. And YES! I do see the camel.
